    GEO Business 2021

    ExCel London

    GEO Business, the UK’s largest geospatial event, has revealed the much-anticipated speaker line up for this year’s show, which takes place on 24-25 November at ExCeL London.

    Visitors can choose from over 120 free-to-attend sessions of exclusive, CPD-accredited content – ranging from talks to interactive demos and panel discussions – delivered by 250+ expert speakers. The programme spans across seven themed theatres, which are all brand new to GEO Business this year. They include the Main Stage, Environment & Sustainability Stage, Future of the Profession Theatre, GIS & Data Hub, In Practice Theatre, Innovation Stage and Tech Stage.

    Sessions for the Main Stage are coming soon. In the meantime, here’s a preview of some of the unmissable content to see at this year’s show:

    Environment & Sustainability Stage

    Geospatial innovation has a key role to play in helping us measure, understand and find solutions to the impacts of climate change. The Environment & Sustainability Stage at GEO Business takes this as its theme, with a selection of talks looking at how geospatial technology can help us achieve net zero and adapt to the consequences of global warming.

    Future of the Profession Theatre

    The Future of the Profession Theatre, sponsored by Topcon, focuses on a key theme for the programme at GEO Business this year. Seminars at the theatre address diversity and inclusion within the geospatial workforce, how to enhance geospatial capabilities and create the profession for the future.

    The programme also covers business transformation and new market opportunities for geospatial technology, including a look at the Earth Observation Data & Services Market: The next decade by Sylvain Drilholle, Consultant, Euroconsult and a seminar on Photogrammetry and future military requirements with Peter Egan, QMSI Construction, British Army (Corps of Royal Engineers).

    GIS & Data Hub

    The GIS & Data Hub, sponsored by Esri, covers all things geospatial data, including analytics, management and use. Sessions on the theatre explore how we can move to an outcome-based approach rather than looking at surveying as a service and how better insights can be created through data, as well as addressing the important issue of data ethics.

    In Practice Theatre

    The In Practice Theatre, sponsored by Senceive, focuses on real-life examples and applications of geospatial technology and data in business and industry.

    Innovation Stage

    The Innovation Stage, sponsored by Leica Geosystems, features talks that demonstrate how geospatial innovation is combining with emerging technologies to revolutionise the way we work and live. Sessions cover different ways of working, new solutions to old challenges, advanced technology or technology newly applied to our profession, research projects and academia.

    These are only a handful of sessions to see at GEO Business this year. To check out the full programme, visit
